- Today, the Chronicle ran a story about the district's ongoing program to crack down on residency fraud. The article includes the following paragraph on plans to check CTIP1 status -- "Under the new student assignment system, more safeguards will be in place. Anyone who provides an address within the prioritized census tracts will automatically go through a review process." No details I can find on what that review will entail, either in the story or on the district's website. Anyone know any more?
- The school district has updated its 2011 elementary school boundary maps page to include the map from September. Earlier, they'd told me the map wasn't yet final and might not be until November, but as of now, it looks like they are going with the September version.
- The new school guide doesn't yet appear to be available online. Anyone know if the paper version is available at the EPC? For some general background, here are district FAQs on the new assignment system.
More updates (added to this post on Friday, November 5):
- The district's recent press release on the residency fraud program includes the following about next year -- "In preparation for instituting a new student placement system, the district has significantly increased its ability to verify all documentation submitted by families during the application process and to prove that an applicant falsified information."
- The district also posted this copy of the residency letter it says it is sending to currently-enrolled families.
